To all South Melbourne FC fans,

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise profusely for my gesture directed towards the crowd during the second half of the Knockout Cup clash with Northcote City FC. There is no excuse or place for such behaviour whilst in the sporting arena and wearing a South Melbourne shirt.

My actions were ill timed and misguided in attempting to stand up for the playing group, which does need the support of its fans. I acknowledge however, that this is not my responsibility and rather I should, as I have done so far this season concentrate on my on-field performance.

I hope you all enjoyed the performance of the boys on Monday and look forward to seeing you on Sunday for our clash with old rivals Melbourne Knights.

Yours in Sport,

Pete Gavalas
